We do a lot of “crazy” things as part of our school. We take Black Belts and Black Belt Candidates out into the woods every year for Black Belt Camp. We host a Christmas Skating Party and Pot Luck. We hold special events like the Pilsung ATA-zing Race, Tiger Easter Workout and Egg Hunt, the Annual Family Picnic and many others. We go hang out with local Preschoolers and workout with local Elementary Schools. We support, and clown around a bit with, our local Fire Department. We support a number local charity organizations and collect everything from canned goods to blankets, often making it a contest for the students to encourage teamwork and creative thinking.

As a conventional method of punishment, most students are sent to detention, subjected to undesirable after-school activities, or even suspended when they do something wrong. That’s how a Baltimore elementary school, Robert W. Coleman, used to do things before they discovered a new, healthier way to approach “discipline.”
Partnering with the Holistic Life Foundation, the school now employs the Mindful Moment program to instead teach kids to wind down, reflect, and breathe in tough situations. When students are misbehaving, they send them to the Mindful Moment room for “individual assistance with emotional self-regulation.”
